To the Left: Reimagining society

This week, Aja and Jess talk with D.C. activist and artist AnaMarie King two days ahead of Inauguration Day in the midst of heightened tensions surrounding the Capitol following J6. The three discuss the fallout from the attack on the Capitol, calls for abolition and reimagining society, and healing through direct action, particularly in areas of gentrification and caring for unhoused populations. AnaMarie tells us about the movement in D.C. and its relationship with local police, and Jess expands on the importance of amplifying Black voices when it comes to matters of reimagining society and calls for abolition.
